    I spotted a nice looking M1008 in the parking lot of a reserve unit in Kansas City last week. I stopped by on business but had to detour around the parking lot to ogle the CUCV on my way out.

    I have found the best place to buy CUCVs is Craig's List and GSA auctions. About one out of five are in pretty good shape, considering.

    No idea how to get close to them, but they've been there for over a year...

    Make your way thru base to Hardin Blvd (east end of the main runway) and continue east. Turn left (to the north) on either Pennsylvania or Texas, and then hang your first right (eastward) onto Griffin Ave. Keep your eyes to the northern warehouses, you'll spot them on the far side of the fence. Happy hunting!

    I am very familiar with Kirkland.
    I know exactly where you are talking about. Just never seen CUCVs in that area.
    Thanks for the heads up!

    Old thread, but I thought it was neat. We have the Anniston Army Depot, what's left of Fort McClellan (about half of it is still active as an Army National Guard base), a couple of reserve centers, and multiple small ANG bases in our county. I have access to them. I'd say there are still about 20 or so CUCVs puttering our area in military service. They tend to be doing odds and ends jobs for the most part.

    Service and support for local action? They will be used. We were loaning out 880s back in 1988 when on TDY. If they run, they will be used on reserve duty.

    I keep seeing them in background shots on auction sites.

    When I was flying in Northen California earlier this month, I spotted several in use at different government facilities and more in the DRMO lots.
    They do stand out on a Military base.


    Prices have definitely gone up.
